I love your writing. I love this Cereal Aisle. From now on if anyone ever asks me that question about who I would want as my ideal dinner companions in a fantasy dinner party--your def one of the seats and I'd want to sit next you. My whole life I've wanted to talk about God and fashion. So much love and tenderness to you and your family for this season.

I’ve goosed bumped with the mum necklace.

Do you know how Phoebe Philo sounds? Moments in Love (Art of Noise) although yes PP it is a sound of its own.

It is like she is (re)starting with some hard edges and she will polish them (us) along the way.

I’m must admit I have an hard time seeing myself in them. Even if I had the budget.

Now about to finish reading second part. Xx

Finding God in the Cereal Isle today... thank you so much for what you have shared here and for being open and vulnerable with your faith. I have a million thoughts. You’re right, it did seem to become “uncool” and it was about “deconstruction”, and perhaps that is normal in the stages of faith development but then we go off replacing God with the kind of things listed in that excerpt you shared and look where it gets us. The hamster wheel of never enough. those words just slapped me awake from that “unconscious” insatiable worship I’ve found myself in. I have never heard of that speech and will be reading. Maybe it’s times like these that humble us back into consciousness and a need to re-connect with something higher... more divine. Again, thank you so much for being COOL, and giving a place for these inspired thoughts with a side of fashion. But I love all the sides. Hope your have a wonderful day with your loved ones
